About Us

Any person associated with boating knows that docking a boat is one of the most challenging experiences. This past year there have been several articles written in the boating magazines about this very subject. Everyone has at least one very unpleasant story to tell about someone they know jumping off a boat to tie up or getting hurt during a docking experience. We decided to make the docking experience less confusing.

The LandingLoop™ is a product that has been created by boaters for use by boaters. It has been in development for over three years. It has been used on large boats, smaller boats, and motor boats. It has also been used on sail boats. It is light weight, safe and easy to use. It has been used in Florida, on the Great Lakes, and on the Illinois River. It has been used to dock in calm weather as well as in 30 mile an hour winds.

We have created an instructional DVD and have included it on our Web Site as well as including one in every Landing Loop package. We ask that you watch the DVD and practice using the Landing Loop before you try to use it for docking. It will prepare you and your crew so everyone will be more familiar with their function during a docking situation.

IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE BOAT’S CAPTAIN TO MAKE ALL CRITICAL DECISIONS DURING ALL DOCKING SITUATIONS.

The LandingLoop™ should be used when there is no one on the dock to assist you in docking. Using the Landing Loop may prevent your mates from getting hurt and make every docking situation a safe and more enjoyable experience.
